According to the American Heart Association, 80 percent of heart disease cases are preventable. That’s why two of the area’s leading heart care experts invite the community to an informative presentation about preventing cardiac disease and what treatment options are available to those who suffer from heart ailments.
Join James Longo, MD, and Matthew Gorman, MD, partners in Cardiology PC, for Taking Care of Your Heart: What You Should Know, on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave., Syracuse. Participation in the program is free, but pre-registration is requested by calling 315/472-2464 or here online. On the day of the event, free parking in the Crouse Hospital and Marley Education Center garages will be available.
In addition to advice on how to prevent a heart attack, the cardiologists will share the latest in cardiac testing and discuss women’s heart health. “Heart disease is the number one cause of death in American women,” says Dr. Longo. “As such, we especially want to help women recognize the gender differences in the development, symptoms and long-term effects of cardiac disease.”
